Kirkpatrick Chapel, Rutgers University
New Brunswick, Middlesex County


The architect of the German Gothic chapel, erected in 1873, was H.J. Hardenbergh. The design generally conforms to Episcopal/ecclesiology precents, but Rutgers was initially founded by the Dutch Reformed church so something else was at work when the design was selected.
